Joy Caroni is looking to add values through her art
Joy Caroni, an artist who uses social media to show her art, looks to add new meaning to the lives of viewers. She also has an interest in different styles. Below, she describes how she got to this point.
Why did you get started with working on art?
I have loved art for as long as I could remember. Colors and textures, watching the shape and forms, exploring the expressions of the human face and body. It’s been a lifetime of enjoying and creating pieces.
What type of art most interests you?
I have explored many different types of art, but for the last several years I’ve fallen in love with abstract art. The ambiguity that allows each viewer to interpret each art-piece according to their life experience seems to be a vital part of the experience.
What does art mean to you?
Art means the world to me. It has carried me through many difficult and beautiful moments of my life. Creating art is one of the highest forms of humanity and my purpose for living.
What is the process of making a piece like?
It depends if it’s an original of mine or a commissioned piece of work. Often it starts with an idea or geometrical form that I want to produce, then the color scheme that inspires me, and in the actual moment of producing anything can happen. I can change my mind or create something else. The movements and emotions when creating are very important. It’s also like a dance to me, there is a certain amount of skill involved and part of that is ‘letting go’ and trusting in the creative process.
Why is art still important to this day?
Art is important for so many reasons. It can serve as a bridge between cultures, preserve history, evoke emotions, and carry the viewer to a new idea.
Do you want to try out different styles?
Always, I’m always searching to learn and practice new styles. Right now, I’m incredibly blessed to enjoy the fluid acrylic technique. But in the future, I would like to use different mediums. I would like to learn sculpture, woodworking, and architecture.
What do you hope people get out of your work?
I want the pieces I’ve created to add value to the homes and lives of my clients. All of my focus is towards staying aligned with the energy of wellbeing and I hope that it shows in my work and allows viewers to appreciate the piece in their own unique moment and point in time.
